Angry A few problems

So I've run into a few problems with my Ram. She sits at 7200 miles. the front wheel well liners are falling apart. (not the only time i've seen this on a ram) For whatever reason the plastic they decided to go with is just utter crap. very flimsy. Secondly there is a click in my steering wheel when it moves. Third my brakes seem weird, soft, like I have to press harder to get them to work right. I'm dropping it off at the dealership on thursday then I'm off to the field for a month to do some good army training then hopefully all will be well.

I have that same tick in my steering, seems to get louder as you drive longer distances. Was gonna see about that if anyone else had this, Figured I had just not heard it before. As for the wheel well liners up front, I have to agree, they are flimsy and they are like attached with nothing to hold them there. Was gonna look to see if there was a way to get them attached better when time permits, as for the breaks, no issues yet there. Give us a heads up when you get back and get your truck what they say. Safe trip out there in training.

I got the same issue with the clicking in the steering, also have a suspension squeek in the front end. And I already had taken it back to the dealer due to a shit battery and it wouldn't start one day but I got a nice mopar one now so its all good.. Other then that all is good and love my truck. Has 10 000miles on the clock

I had the 'soft brake' feeling too. I took it back to the dealer and they said it is normal. If you keep pushing the pedal after stopping, it goes all the way to the floor. They said the ABS system returns excess pressure back into the system. Dont know if its BS or not. Just know it still feels softer than when I bought it. It has 5000 miles on it...Its the first truck I had that the pedal goes all the way to the floor ..and I had alot of trucks...

They are feeding you some B/S its is never normal for a brake pedal to go all the way to the floor. Most dealers just don't want to do any warranty work so their common response is that it is normal. Chrysler is the worst I have ever dealt with about warranty work. You will have to put on your boxing gloves.

i think its just really dealer specific as far as the warranty work. I had an electrical issue with mine and my dealer worked with me thru the whole thing. they actually put time and effort into calling several different resources to find the issue. Some dealers are good, some are not, simple answer.

So true. Trying to find a dealership with a top notch service manager is tough. And then there are the service techs who are all on flat rate and are looking to cut corners on their jobs to make as much money as possible in an 8 hour day. Diagnosing warranty problems are the last thing a mechanic wants to do. And to top it off the service department does not get paid top dollar for warranty work. So all in all , they do not want to spend the time and money on warranty work and all they want to do is to get you out of there asap. Unless you are lucky to have a service manager like the guy above.

Hey Shotcaller,
It's been 2 months, what happened? Just FYI, my brake pedal is hard as a rock, and when I just lay my foot on it my truck stops... Now! Spongy brakes usually mean air in the line and going all the way to the floor - law suit in the making. Any dealer would be nuts to ignore a problem like this.

I also had the click in the steering wheel, the dealer had to replace the steering shaft and that fixed it right up. Hopefully they can do their jobs and fix your trucks.
